In 1936, director William Cameron Menzies, editor William Hornbeck, and composer Sir Arthur Bliss, pooled their considerable talents and created what is possibly (at least, I think) the most powerful two minutes and 22 seconds ever put on film -- the prophetic montage from Alexander Korda's "Things To Come." It is an exercise in contrasts between war and peace.
